 It might be the fonts you're using, or maybe your X server is buggy?  Next
time you see the problem, try reading the message in a few different
environments, like on a virtual console, or under X, or on another machine.
Also, try looking at your mailbox with a regular text viewer, instead of an
email client, in case it is giving problems.

 I've never heard of that happening before, but good luck!
 happy hacking,
